I’ve had the band about two weeks now. I know it’s early, but I wanted to compare notes with others over what you feel about the accuracy of the band so far.
I have been wearing a Fitbit Charge 2, for 2 to 3 years now. I use it mostly for sleep tracking.
After charging the band for this first (and so far, only) time, I put it on and moved the Fitbit to my other arm. So far both bands come fairly close in their step counts. They’re usually off by about a couple hundred per day. However, they report vastly different sleep times. The Wyze typically shows about 30 to 40 minutes more sleep per night. I sleep about 5.5 hours a night, so that’s significant.
I realize the Wyze Band is new and costs Much less, but if I can’t rely on fairly accurate information, what value does any device have?
I’m not saying the wise band is off, I don’t know which band might be.
One of the things I prefer about the Fitbit though, is the app. You have the ability to edit your info. For instance, if the app says I went to bed at 3 a.m., but I know I went to bed at 2:30 a.m. I can edit that.
Psychologically, I like that the wyze band shows that I’ve slept longer. However my body tends to agree with the Fitbit.
Besides the battery life, another thing I prefer with the Wyze band is the form factor. I barely notice it on my wrist.
I’m not a fan of the Alexa integration though. It takes far too long to activate it, imo. True, Fitbit doesn’t have Alexa…
